Kids from Merri Creek Primary School became citizen scientists in Melbourne Museum's Forest Gallery recently to launch Biodiversity Snapshots, the new mobile-device field guide created for school students to study the fauna in their schoolyard, neighbourhood park, or bushland.
Critters and keepers from Live Exhibits were on hand for the students to identify at the lauch, which was attended by Bronwyn Pike MP, Minister for Education, Skills and Workforce Participation.
